London: Actor Zac Efron refuses to be bothered about the rumours that he is gay.
The 24-year-old, who has previously dated Vanessa Hudgens and Lily Collins, is happy to embrace his gay fanbase and does not worry if people question his own sexuality in the process.
"It`s very flattering. After `High School Musical` and `Hairspray`, I`ve always felt embraced by the gay community, and I feel incredibly grateful," a website has quoted Efron as saying.
"I don`t like to live in fear about things like rumours and backlash to begin with - that`s the way I was raised - but I just can`t see what`s so wrong about being gay," he added.
